Ghana Broadcasting Corporation Creates Reforms Committee

Ghana’s National Media Commission (NMC), in partnership with the government and other industry stakeholders, has put together a committee to conduct the reforms of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC).

The committee aims to find new ways to make the GBC a functional and meaningful public broadcast entity.

A statement signed by the Chairman of the NMC, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh, said that the GBC Reforms Committee would, among various other things, examine the relevance of public service broadcasting in the era of media pluralism, assess the impact of GBC as a public broadcaster and provide a framework for global best practices management, governance structure and funding.

On the committee are respected experts on reforms including the Chairperson Elizabeth Ohene and Berfi Apenteng.
Others are Professor Yakubu Zakaria, Kofi Yeboah Kodie, Dr Esi Ansah and Wilna Quarmyne.

The statement revealed that the committee would have to complete work within six months after which it would present a detailed report to the National Media Commission. The NMC would then engage the President for further deliberations and the subsequent adoption of the report for implementation.
